mittee for Its rejection, and that no hymn not now In the collection 
^1^ shall be admitted without a vote of two thirds of the Committee In

To the Committee appointed to revise the Hymn Book :— 

Dear Brethren— The Bishops, at their late meeting In Cleveland, 
Ohio, very thoroughly examined the result of the labors of the Com- 
mittee appointed under authority of the last General Conference, to 
revise the Hymn Book of the Methodist Episcopal Church. 

1. They went through the entire list of the hymns In the book now 
In use which the Committee has excluded. 

2. They thoughtfully considered every revision made In the text of 
the hymns which the Committee has retained. 

8. They read through carefully, and In many cases repeatedly, ev- 
ery new hymn which the Committee has Introduced Into the Revised 
Hymn Book. 

After the Committee had made a few changes which the Bishops 
suggested, the following resolution was unanimously adopted, 
namely :— 

Resolved, That we have thoroughly examined, with great satisfac- 
tion, the work of the Committee appointed to revise the Hymn Book. 
We tender to the members of that Committee our thanks ; and believe 
the gratitude of the Church Is due these brethren for the labor they 
have expended, and the wisdom, taste, and good judgment they have 
shown In preparing this most excellent book.

Under thQ direction of the General Conference 
of 1876 this revised edition of our excellent 
Hymn Book has been prepared. The action of 
the General Conference, the names of the Com- 
mittee selected by the Bishops, and the judg- 
ment of the Bishops as expressed to the Com- 
mittee, are herewith presented. You will note 
the great care which has marked every part of 
the work, whether in rejecting any of the hymns 
formerly used, or in changing their phraseology, 
or in the selection of those which are new. 
Though perfection is not claimed, yet we be- 
lieve the present Hymn Book will be considered 
a great improvement on the preceding one. 

We most cordially commend it to you as one 
of the choicest selections of evangelical hymns 
ever published; and we trust that it will increase 
the interest of public worship, give a higher 
inspiration to social and family %eY\\c.^'e»,^Ti.^^^ 
In private meditation and d^^o\AO\i. K^ ^ "^ 


published by the authority of the Church, and 
to meet the wants of the Church, and as the 
profits will be devoted to religious purposes, we 
do the more earnestly commend it to your 
liberal patronage. 

We exhort you, dear brethren, to "sing with 
the spirit" and "with the understanding also," 
"making melody in your heart to the Lord." 

Your affectionate pastors in Christ, 

January 12, 1878.

'Til life and health, and peace. 

4 He breaks the power of canceled sin, 
He sets the prisoner free ; 

His blood can make the foulest clean ; 

His blood arailed for me. 
h He speaks, and, listening to his voice, 

New life the deisd reoeiTe ; 
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice ; 

The humble poor believe. 
C Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb, 

Your loosened tongues employ ; 
Ye blind, 1>ehold your Saviour come ; 

And leap, ye lame, for joy.

COME, let us join our cheerful songs 
With angels round the throne; 
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues, 
But all their joys are one.

*<To be exalted thus I" 
** Worthy the Lamb ! " our hearts reply, 

** For he was slain for us."

Honor and power divine ; 
And blessings more than we can give, 

Be, Lord, forever thine.

Of him that sits upon the throne. 

And to adore the Lamb.

The watery worlds are all his own, 
And all the solid ground.

Come, bow before the Lord ; 

We are his works, and not our own ; 
He formed us by his word. 

4 To-day attend his voice, 
Nor dare provoke his rod ; 

Come, like the people of hit choice. 
And own your gracious Ood.

Veiled in serener majestv ; 

So full of glory, truth, and grace. 
That faith alone such light ran see.

Is Cnrist within these walls revealed, 
When blind, and deaf, and dumb were 
Lepers and lame, and all were healed : 

4 Yet here, when two or three shall meet. 
Or thronging multitudes are found, 

All may sit down at Jesus' feet, 
And near from him the joyful sound.

When the spirit rests from sin.

Where the evening worshiper

With thee are as a fleeting <uy ; 

Past, present, future, to thy sight 
At once their various scenes display. 

8 But our brief life's a shadowy dream, 
A passing thought, that soon is o'er, 

That fades with morning's earliest beam. 
And fills the musing mind no more. 

4 To us, O Lord, the wisdom give 
Each passing moment so to spend. 

That we at length with thee may live 
Where life and bliss shall never end.

It withers in an hour.

Thy words of promise sure.

And what he wills is best. 

8 If what I wish is good, 
And suits the will divine, 

By earth and hell in vain withstood, 
I know it shall be mine. 

4 Still let them counsel take 

To frustrate his decree ; 
They cannot keep a blessing back, 

By Heaven designed for me.

But in his pleasure rest, 
Whose wisdom, love, and truth, and

IN the cross of Christ I glory. 
Towering o'er the wrecks of time ; 
All the light of sacred story 
Gathers round its head snblime. 

S When the woes of life o'ertake me, 
Hopes deceive, and fears annoy, 

Never shall the cross forsake me ; 
Lo I it glows with peace and joy. 

3 When the san of bliss is beaming 
Light and love upon my way, 

From the cross the radiance streaming 
Adds more luster to the day. 

4 Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure, 
By the cross are sanctified ; 

Peace is there, that knows no measure, 
Joys that through all time abide.

Towering o'er the wrecks of time ; 

All the llgnt of sacred story 

Gathers round its head sublime.

NEVER further than Thy cross : 
Never higher than thy feet : 
Here earth's precious things seem droRs : 
Here earth's bitter things grow sweet. 

5 Gating thus our sin we see, 
Learn thy love while gazing thus ; 

Sin, which laid the cross on tnee. 
Love, which bore the cross for us. 

8 Here w« learn to serve and give, 

And, rejoicing, self deny ; 
Here we gather love to live. 

Here we gather faith to die. 

4 Pressing onward as we ran. 

Still to this our hearts must tend ; 
Where our earliest hopes began. 
There our last aspirmgs end ; 

5 Till amid the hosts of light, 
We in thee redeemed, complete, 

Through thy cross made pure and white. 
Cast our crowns before thy feet.

A second Adam to the fight

Should teach his brethren, and inspire

In shining letters, " God Is Lots ;" 

He bears our sins upon the tree, 
He brings us mercy from above. 

3 The cross ! It takes our guilt away ; 
It holds the faintinz spirit up ; 

It cheers with hope toe gloomy day. 
And sweetens every bitter cup. 

4 It makes the coward spirit brave. 
And nerves the feeble arm for fight ; 

It takes Its terror from the sn^ve. 
And gilds the bed of death with light:

An advoeaU vUk the FiM«r.—l John 9:1. 

JESUS, my Advocate above. 
My Friend before the throne of love. 
If now for me prevails thy prayer, 
If now I find thee pleading there, — 

5 If thon the secret wish convey, 

And sweetly prompt my heart to pray,— 
Hear, and my weak petitions join, 
Almighty Advocate, to thine. 

S JesQs, my heart's desire obtain ; 
My earnest suit present, and gain : 
My fullness of corruption show ; 
The knowledge of myself bestow. 

4 O sovereign Love, to thee I cry. 
Give me thyself, or else I die ! 

Save me from death, from hell set ft'ee ; 
I>eath, hell, are but the want of thee.

O CHRIST, our King, Creator, Lord, 
Saviour of all who trust thy word, 
To them who seek thee ever near, 
Now to oar praieea bend thine ear. 

5 In thy dear cross a grace is found, 
It flows twax every streaming wound, 
Whoee power our inbred sin controls, 
Bimks Uie firm bond and frees our souls. 

S Thotf didst create the stars of night. 
Yet thou hast veiled in flesh thy light; 
Hast deigned a mortal form to wear, 
A mortaPs painful lot to bear. 

4 When thou didst hang upon the tree. 
The quaking earth acknowledged thee ; 
When thou didst there yield up thy breath, 
Th« world grew dark as shades of death. 

( Now In tb« Father's glory high^ 
Great Conqaeror, never more to die, 
Us by thy mighty power defend. 
And reign throngh ages without end.

Nor of fitness fondly dream ; 

All the fitness he requireth 
Is to feel your need of him : 

This he gives you ; 
*T\a the Spint's glimmering beam. 

4 Come, ye weary, heavy-laden. 
Bruised and mangled by the fall ; 

If you tarry till you're better, 
Yon will never come at all ; 

Not the rightaous, —

Hear him cry, before he die*. 

" It is finished !"

Pleads the merit of his blood : 

Venture on him, venture freely ; 
Let no other trust intrude : 

None but Jesus 
Can do helpless sinners good. 

7 Siints and angels, joined in concert, 
Sing the praives of the Lamb ; 

While the blissful seats of heaven 
Sweetly echo with his name : 

Hallelujah ! 
Sinners here may do the same.

S Come, in sorrow and contrition, 
Wounded, impotent, and blind ; 

Here the guilty, free remission, 
Here the lost a refuge find. 

Health this fountain will restore ; 

He that drinks need thirst so more. 

3 Come, ye dying, live forever ; 

'Tis a soul-reviving flood ; 
Gk>d is faithful ; he will never 
Bnak hit covenant sealed in blood ; 
Sifted wbea our Redeemer died,

The gift of faith. C. P. M. 

AUTHOR of faith, to thee I cry. 
To thee, who wouldct not have me 9k9, 
But know the truth and live : 
Open mine eyes to see thy face ; 
Work in my heart the saving gruM ; 
The life eternal give. 

3 Shut up in nnbelief, I groan. 
And blindly serve a God unknown, 
Till Ihott ihe v«\l remove ; 



The gift nnape«k«ble impart, 

And write thy luune upon mr heart. 

And manifest thy love. 
8 I know the work it only thine. 
The gift of faith is all dirine ; 

Bat, if on thee we call, 
Thou wilt that gracious gift bestow. 
And cause our hearts to feel and know 

That thou hast died for all. . 

4 Thou bidd'st us knock and enter in, 
Come unto thee, and rest from sin. 

The blessing seek and find : 
Thou bidd'st us ask thy grace, and hare ; 
Thou canst, thou wouldst, this moment save 

Both me and all mankind. 

5 Be it according to thy word ; 
Now let me find my pardoninsr Lord : 

Let what I ask bi given: ' 

The bar of unbelief remove ; 
Open the door of fiiith and love, 

And take me into heaven.

Simply to thy cross I cling.

When I rise' to worlds unknown,

Peace and hope of the ri^teou*. 

LORD, how secure and blest are they 
Who feel the Joys of pardoned sin I 
Should storms of wrath shake earth and sea. 
Their minds have heaven and peace 
t The day glides sweetly o'er their heads. 

Made up of innocence and love ; 
And soft and silent as the shades. 
Their nightly minutes gently move. 

8 Quick as their thoughts their joys come on. 
But fly not half so swift away : 

Their souls are ever bright as noon. 

And calm as summer evenings be. 
4 How oft they look to the heavenly hUls, 

Where poves of living pleasure grow ; 
And longing hopes, and cneerful smiles. 

Sit undisturbed upon their brow ! 
6 They scorn to seek earth's golden toys. 

But spend the day, and share the night. 
In numoering o'er the richer joys 

That Heaven prepares for their delight.

Be thou my hope, my joy, my rest;

Tbou art my Father and my God ; 

And I am thine by sacred ties, 
Tby too, thy sermnt bought with blood. 

8 With heart and eyes, and lifted luuida. 
For thee I long, to tnee I look, 

As travelers in thirsty lands 
Pant for the cooling water-brook. 

4 E'en life Itself, without thy love. 
No lasting pleasure can aflord ; 

Tea, 'twould a tiresome burden prove, 
If I were banished ftrom thee. Lord. 

5 I '11 lift my hands, I '11 raise my vote*. 
While I have breath to pray or pralM : 

This work shall make my beart ngoic*, 
And fill the remnant of my days.

With Christ may I l>e crucified ; 

To thee with my whole heart aspire : 
Dead to the world and all its toys.

Be thou alone my one desire.

Beholding thee with open face ;

Forever standing on its guard. 
And watching unto prayer.

Never to murmur at thy stay, 

Or wish my sufferings less.

Out of the deep on thee to call. 
And never, never faint. 

9 I want a true regard, 

A single, steady aim, 
Unmoved oy threatening or reward. 

To thee and thy great name ; 
A jealous, just concern • 

For thine immortal praise ; 
A pure desire that all may learn 

And glorify thy grace. 

8 I rest upon thy word ; 

The promise is for me ; 
My succor and salvation, Lord, 

Shall surely come from thee : 
But let me still abide, 

Nor from my hope remove, 
Till thou my patient spirit guide 

Into tby perfect love.

My whole of sin remove ; 

Let all my works in thee be wronght. 
Let all be wrought in love. 

3 O arm me with the mind. 
Meek Lamb, that was in thee ; 

And let my knowing zeal be joined 
With perfect charity. 

4 With calm and tempered zeal 
Let me enforce thy call ; 

And vindicate thy gracious will, 
Which offers life to alL 

5 O may I love like thee ; 
In all thy footsteps tread ; 

Thou hatest all iniquity, 
But nothing thou bast made. 

S O may I learn the art. 

With meekness to reprove ; 
To hate the sin with all my heart. 

But still the sinner love.

MY Jesus, as thou wilt: 
O may thy will be mine ; 
Into thy hand of love 

I would my all resign. 
Through sorrow or through joy, 

Conduct me as thine own. 
And help me still to say, 
" My Lord, thy will be done.'» 

9 My Jesus, as thou wilt: 

Though seen through many a tear, 
Let not my star of hope 

Grow dim or disappear. 
Since thou on earth hast wept 

And sorrowed oft alone. 
If I must weep with thee. 

My Lord, tby will be done. 

3 My Jesus, as thou wilt : 

All shall be well for me ; 
Each changing future scene 

I eladly trust with thee. 
Straight to my home alwve, 

I travel calmly on. 
And sing in life or aeath, 

" My Lord, thy will be done."

Safe into the haven guide,

Hangs my nelplesa soul on thee: 
Leave, O leave me not alone, 

Still support and comfort me : 
All my trust on thee is stayed. 

All my help from thee I oring; 
Cover my defenseless head 

With the shadow of thy wing t 

3 Thou, O Christy art all I want; 
More than all m thee I find ; 

Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 

Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Just and holy is thy name,

False and full of sin I am. 

Thou art full of truth and grace. 

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, 
Urace to cover all my sin : 

Let the healing streams abound ; 

Make and keep me pure within. 
Thou of life the fountain art, 
Freely let me take of thee : 
Spring thou up within my heart,

Bliaa-ifupiring Hope. 
/^OME on, my partners in distress, 
^^ My comraoes through the wilderness. 

Who still your bodies feel ; 
Awhile forget your griefs and fears, 
And look beyond this vale of tears. 

To that celestial hill. 

2 Beyond the bounds of time and space. 
Look forward to that heavenly place, 

The saints' secure abode : 
On faith's strong eagle pinions rise. 
And force your passage to the skies, 

And scale the mount of God. 

3 Who suffer with our Master here, 
We shall before his face appear 

And by his side sit down ; 
To patient faith the prize is sure, 
And all that to the end endure 

The crou, shall wear the crown. 

4 Thrice blessed, bliss-inspiring hope ! 
It lifts the fainting spirits up. 

It brings to life the dead : 
Our conflicts here shall soon be past. 
And yon and I ascend at last. 

Triumphant with onr Head. 

6 That great mysterious Deitv 
We soon with open face shall see { 

The beatific sight 
Shall fill the heavenly courts with praise. 
And wide diffuse the golden blaze 

Of everlasting light.

'T'HY mercy heard my infant prayer ; 
-*- Thy love| with all a mother's care. 

Sustained my childish days : 
Thy goodness watched my ripening yonth. 
And formed my heart to love thy truth, 

And filled my lips with praise. 

9 And now, in age and grief, thy name 
Doth still my languid heart inflame. 

And bow my faltering knee : 
O yet this bosom feels the fire ; 
This trembling hand and drooping lyre 

Have yet a strain for thee ! 

8 Yes ; broken, tuneless, still, O Lord, 
This voice, transported, shall record 

Thy goodness, tried so long ; 
Till, sinking slow, with calm decay. 
Its feeble murmurs melt away 

Into a seraph's song. .

And grace command my heart away 
From all created good.

Who reigns above the skies ; 
Hope that unites the soul te heaven 

By faith's endearing ties. 

8 Each care, each ill of mortal birth, 

Is sent in pitying love. 
To lift the lingering heart from earth. 

And speed its flight above.

And every Joy that dies. 

Bid us to seek a purer rest. 
And trust to holier ties.

LORD, it belongs not to my care 
Whether I die or live ; 
To love and serve thee is my share. 
And this tity grace must give.

That I may fong obey ; 

If short, yet why should I be sad 
To soar to endlett day !

Ana all my hopes decline.

Thou art my only triut ; 

And still my soul would cleave to thee, 
Though prostrate in the dust.

Contented piety. 


FATHER, I know that all my life 
Is portioned out for me ; 
And t'ue changes that are sure to come 

I do not fear to see ; 
But I ask thee for a present mind 
Intent on pleasing thee. 


9 I aak thee for a thoughtful love, 
Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyfiil smiles, 
And wipe the weeping eyes ; 

And a heart at leisure rrom itself, 
To soothe and sympathize. 

3 I would not hare the restless will 
That hurries to and fro, 

Seeking for some great thing to do, 

Or secret thing to know j* 
I would be treated as a child. 

And guided where I go. 

4 Wherever in the world I am, 
In whatsoe'er estate. 

I have a fellowship with hearts. 

To keep and cultivate ; 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 
6 So I ask thee for the daily strength. 

To none that ask denied. 
And a mind to blend with outward life, 

While keeping at thy side ; 
Content to ml a little space, 

If thou b« glorified. 

6 And if some things I do not atk 

In my cup of blessing be, 
I would have my spirit filled the more 

With grateful love to thee ; 
More careful, not to serve thee much, 

But to please thee perfectly.

The soul finds happiness in none ; 
But with a God to guide our way, 
'Tis equal joy, to go or stay.

Secure of finding, God in all.

O'er the grave where Laxarus slept ; 
By the boding tears that flowed 
Over Salem's loved abode ; 

By the anguished sigh that told 
Treachery lurked within thy fold ; 
From thy seat above the sky 
Hear our solemn litany ! 

4 By thine hour of dire despair ; 
By thine agony of prayer ; 

Br the cross, the nail, the thorn, 
Piercing spear, and torturing soom ; 
Bv the gloom that veiled the skies 
O'er the dreadful sacrifice ; 
Listen to our humble cry. 
Hear our solemn litany I

By the sad sepulchral stone ;

Of our solemn litany !

The fruit of all thy sorrows share ;

When darkest clouds around I see.

TJARK I from the tombs a doleful sound ; 
^-*- My ears, attend the cry : 
" Ye living men, come view the ground 
Where you must shortly lie. 

9 ** Princes, this clay must be your bed, 

In spite of all yonr towers ; 
The tall, the wise, the reverend head, 

Must lie as low as ours." 

3 Great God I is this our certain doom! 
And are we still secure! 

Still walking downward to the tomb, 
And yet prepared no more ! 

4 Grant os the power of quickening grace 
To fit our souls to fly ; 

Then, when we drop this dying flesh. 
We '11 rise above the sky.

Amfd the deepening gloom. 
We, followers of our suflbring Lord, 
Are marching to the tomb. 

9 There, when the turmoil is no more, 

And all oar powers decav. 
Our cold remains in solitnae 

Shall sleep the years away. 

8 Our labors done, securely laid 
In this our last retreat. 

Unheeded, o'er our silent dust. 
The storms of earth shall beat. 

4 Yet not thus buried, or extinct. 

The vital spark shall lie ; 
For o'er life's wreck that spark shall rise 

To seek its kindred sky. 

6 These ashes, too, this little dust 

Our Father's care shall keep. 
Till the last angel rise and httak 

The long and dreary sleep.

WHY should we start, and fear to die 1 
What timorous worms we mortals are ! 
Death is the gate to endless jov, 
And yet we dread to enter there.

Fright our approaching souls away ; 

And we shrink back'ag«n to life, 
Fond of our prison and our clay.

My soul would stretch her wings in haste, 

Flv fearless through death's iron gate, 
Nor feel the terrors as she passel.

While on his breast llean my head.

Survives in the vicissitude.

Fret, dash, and break themselves In vain ;

Of golden light forever shine ; 

Though clouds may darken, storms may 

They still shine on from age to age ; 

4 So, through the ocean-tide of years. 
The memory of the just appears ; 
So, through the tempest and the gloom, 
The good man's virtues light the tomb.

When earth all helping power 

Shall disavow ; 
When spear, and shield, and crown. 
In faintness are cast down ; 

Sustain us, thou!

The death-cup for our sake. 

The thorn, the rod ; 
From whom the last dismay 
Was not to pass away ; 

Aid us, O God I

We call on thee to save.

Hear, hear our suppliant breath. 
Keepjis in life and death, 

Thine, only thine.

God recalls the precious loan ; 
God hath taken him away. 

From my bosom to his own : 
Surely what he wills is best ; 
Happy in his will I rest.

TENDER Shepherd, thou hast stilled 
Now thy little lamb's brief weeping : 
Ah, how peaceful, pale, and mild 
In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping ! 
And no sigh of anguish sore 
Heaves that little bosom more.

Praitt to the Lord of harvett. 

SING to the Lord of harvest I 
Sing songs of love and praise I 
With jovful hearts and voices 

Your nallelujahs raise : 
By him the rolling seasons 

In fruitful order move ; 

Sing to the Lord of harvest 

A song of happy love. 

8 Bv him the clouds drop fatness, 

Tne deserts bloom and spring. 
The hills leap up In gladness. 

The valleys laugh and sing: 
He filleth with his fullness 

All things with large increase, 
He crowns the year with goodneaa. 

With plenty, and with peace. 

8 Heap on his sacred altar 
The gifts his goodness gave. 

The golden sheaves of harvest. 
The souls he died to save : 

Your hearts lay down before hfm 
When at his feet ye fall, 

And with your lives adore him 
Who gave his life for all. 

4 To God, the gracious Father, 

Who made us " very good," 
To Christ, who, when we wandered, 

Restored us with his blood, 
And to the Holy Spirit, 

Who doth upon us pour 
His blessed dews and sunshine, 

Be praise for evermore !

The pr*aeking Uem». 

THE leaves, around me felling. 
Are preaching of decay. 
The hollow winds are calling, 

" Come, pilgrim, come away I 
The day, in night declining. 

Says I must, too, decline ; 
The year, its life resigning,— 

lU lot foreshadows mine. 
« The light my path surrounding, 

The loves, to which I cling. 
The hopes within me bounding, 

The joys that round me wing,— 
All melt, like stars of even, 

Before the morning's ray, 
Pass upward unto heaven. 

And chide at my delay. 

3 The friends, gone there before me, 
Are calling from on high ; 

And joyous angels o'er me 
Tempt sweetly to the skv : 

"Why wait," they say, '^and wither 
'Mid scenes of death and sin 1 

O rise to glory, hither. 
And find true life begin." 

4 I hear the invitation, 

And fiiin would rUe and coma,— 

A sinner, to salvation ; 

An exile, to his home : 
But, while I here must linger. 

Thus, thus let all I see 
Point on, with faithful finger, 

To heaven, O Lord, and thee.

Of sadness and of dread ;

Can sink the world, or bid it rise : 
Thy smile Is life, thy frown Is death. 

8 When angry nations rush to arms, 
And rage, and noise, and tumult reign, 

And war resounds Its dire alarms, 
And slaughter dyes the hostile plain, — 

3 Thy sovereign eye looks calmly down, 
And marks their course, and bounds their 

Thy law the angry nations own. 
And noise and war are heard no more. 

4 Then peace returns with balmy wing; 
Sweet peace, with her what blessing! 

Glad plenty laughs, the valleys sing. 
Reviving commerce lifts her head.

Confess thy goodness, ana adore.
